Yes, I would love to retake in what I learned from Unglued.
I loved her confident excitment about her book. She is filled with Godly wisdom.
This book is probably perfect for someone with the same problems and reactions and probably young. I am just too old for this book. I wanted to tell this person to grow up for God's sake and stop acting like an out of control pre-teen. When she files off into a rage over a little thing, it is a reaction we recognize as the straw that broke the camel's back. I just couldn't get very far in this book to find out if it ever got better or if she was just going to flop on the ground like a carp over every little thing. Self absorbed without coping skills and how she reacts sums up the book. Yes, I couldn't stand it and tried not to let the horrible person portrayed want to grade this with no stars.
I have recommended this audiobook to several of my friends already. I am on my second listen and appreciate the sound biblical reminders the book offers when emotions rise and my own thoughts begin to prevail. It has served as a wonderful redirecting of my thoughts back to God's perspective.
I liked Lysa's vulnerability which she reveals throughout the book. I do not believe I would have stuck with the subject matter had I not believed she actually lived life like the rest of the world.
Of course it is much more enjoyable to listen to the author herself reading how she felt in those particular moments she is sharing. I think the impact can be greater on the listener.
It brought up some memories and examples within my own mind of my life and how much I have to be ready to practice "soul integrity" as she calls it - Godly honesty all of the time in every relationship. I was particularly drawn to her explanation and examples of putting up barriers vs. setting boundaries. I did smile and relate numbers of times with her examples.
I think this is a REAL girl's book. I would recommend it to any girl/woman who wants to be honest with herself and others and follow a God of honesty and truth.
No.One chapter at time to let it marinate.
Lysa did a great job with this book. Each time I listened to it admist the chaos of my young family (3 kids under 6) I felt refreshed and better able to love them. Thank you for sharing so much if your self.
Practical, Applicable, Enjoyable
No, but I hope to soon.
I love that this book is expressively read by the author. This book was very helpful and very enjoyable to listen to.
This book was recommended by a friend. This is the first "self-help" book I have purchased. It really spoke to me. As Lysa read, it was as though she was sitting on my couch, talking to me as an old friend, pouring out her heart. I really needed her guidance. I plan on reading/listening to this book a few more times.
Even though Lysa had my full attention, I knew the best way to absorb her book was to stop and reflect after each chapter and sometimes in the middle of a chapter.
Highly recommend for any female but definitely working moms.
Yes, I would recommend this book to anyone who struggles with managing their emothions, not just anger.
The author's real experience and practical advice is easy to apply to my own situation.
Herself. I love that she is so raw and vulnerable with her readers.
I really related to all discussions relating to parenting and spousal communication.
Much easier to listen while I am doing other things like cleaning or driving.
To calm down and try not to come Unglued!
I will listen to this time and time again! Practical suggestions on how to honestly and sincerely handle tough situations in ways that reflect Christ's love.
Lysa TerKeurst's sincerity shines through!
Just love books.
Yes get rid of the sermons.
Isn't this the same question as above? Take away the sermon style preaching at the end of each chapter.
The narration was great, the content was excellent, I loved this book.
I am not religious at all and this book refers to alot of bible scriptures that are relevant but this is not the problem. The problem is that the author is obviously quite religious and spends quite a bit of time delivering a sermon style summary to each chapter. I had to skip these bits.
Great content in this book if you can handle the preaching you will love it.
